Title: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Auberoun on June 18, 2010, 07:18:59 AM
Based on the popular happy random thoughts thread, this is a thread to vent some bad things that have been going on in your life.  Not to be pessimistic, just to vent.  Not that it will matter much, but it may help you feel better.  I'll start. 

I got into troube at work for the 5th time for doing my job!  Management says one thing, then when you do what they say, you get a write up.  I want to quit, but can't because I have a family to help support.

ouch man.

I just got lambasted by the boss for a big and messy booking which I took over for someone as they were on leave. Had nothing to do with it at all but I got all the mess to clean up...thankfully I leave on the 9th (meant to be the 30th but they asked me to stay longer and like an idiot I agreed).

Any possibility to apply to a new job without your boss knowing? Bies and Auberon?

It seems that whatever I say, someone in my staff will be able to interpret it the wrong way....  :engel:
 
Bies : If you're unhappy, Leave on the 30th.
 
Unless you signed something to the contrary, you will have fulfilled you obligations by then.
You're an employee in resignation, there's hardly anything your boss can do to you anymore (it's not like they can double fire you, is it ?)
 
Auberoun : If you are unclear about your assignment, ask for written instructions (a short mail will do). If you do as told and get into trouble again, you have something to refer to. Be polite, respectful but steadfast in your defence and you should command respect in return for your behaviour.

You know I wasn't fired!

I resigned. Actually I'm hoping for a minor form of comeback. I was originally in a dept. called Destination India dealing with tours and packages and trains in Southern-Asia. I got a new dept. head and we clashed so I changed into ticketing.

My replacement has quit and leaves next monday and June has alientated all the Indian offices that shes been asked to take a 3 week break (I don't know all the details maybe shes just taking a holiday). So I'm the only staff member trained in running tour groups even though I haven't run any since January.

I told my contact in India and I quote "God finally blesses me!"

So I'm kinda hoping that in the 3 weeks I'll be running the dept. I'll show just how much of a cow June is/was. Plus I need the money for when I visit Australia (from 11-26Jul for Warlord and Sig- where is Sig anyhow?).

Plus I need that reference before I piss them off =P

Auberon my mate had the exact same thing happen to him. Turned out the HK office had been told to hire a straight out uni grunt but instead took my mate (who had been unemployed for 6 months so took a 100,000HKD pay cut) who is technically a senior engineer. The HK office would give him senior jobs while the global office groups would look on going "wtf is a junior talking to these people for"

Ended up getting into a lot of hot water.

Great post once again  :eusa_clap:

The people always seem to underestimate the power of written word. Write notes about how and why you did your job and if possible talk about it with your superior. There are good bosses out there ( I am lucky to have one) who will work out stuff if you go to them and talk with them. If you have something written with a signature on it you are pretty safe. Your boss earns more money because he carries more responsibility sometimes you help him by talking about your problems.

If your boss is a jackass that always hands failure down the line I suggest my plan A again (seek for a better job secretly).

Good responses here.  I have been looking for a new job for a while now, to no avail.  So, I am stuck where I am for now.  I have discussed simalar situations with my boss, and the answer is always the same.  Even with a no-win situation, they expect you to make a decision, then you get heat for the decision, no matter how you make it.  If you turn the problem over to a supervisor, you would get in trouble for not doing your job.   I have gone above and beyond in my duties several times, just to get lambasted (good word Bies.) in the end.  I guess I will stick to mediocre work from now on.
 Ah well, I'll just keep looking, and working just to "get by".

Ok Bies, that made me LOL.   :icon_lol:

I am an Auditor for a prestigious hotel near an international airport.  We are sold out most nights of the week.  The sad thing is I have a bit of management experience under my belt, and this was the only job I could find at the time.  As stressful as it is at times, I am glad I don't work days, but graveyard shift.

Believe it or not, the guests typically are not the problem for my shift, it is the employees during the day who make mistakes, and the management who can't make up their mind how to run a business.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Nicholas Bies on June 18, 2010, 10:07:46 AM
I know that one, I spend around 2 days a week on advertising for the company, so writing adds, meeting with newspapers and add companies etc.

All because my boss wants to broaden our image. Moment I get a decent deal or good opportunity she pulls out because of time/cost/demographic etc.

then during my reviews she turns around and tells me I'm not selling enough tickets and making enough money for her! Well perhaps if she didn't have me wasting every monday/tuesday on idea she likes but cbf committing too I'd make more cash (not to mention I figure I should get half the profit from every client who calls because of an add I write which doesn't happen).

What does an auditor do (I only know ISO 9001 auditors..) ?
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Cannonofdoom on June 18, 2010, 11:15:11 AM
Night Auditors work the night shift (11pm-7am for me), and post all the charges for the rooms, and then compile all of the reports that the various managers (General Manager, Sales Manager, Assistant General Manager, Housekeeping Supervisor) then ignore, unless you make a tiny error or have a single sheet of paper out of place. There's a mountain or two of paperwork (I go through a quarter of a ream of paper a night - a ream is 500 sheets), and then you have to fix all the mistakes that the day shifts made. Then you have to handle any customer problems and issues, which usually involve drunk people and toilets. Then you do whatever else your manager has tasked you to do because you have too much "free time" on your shift. Then you paint some models. Well, I do anyway, when I have time. I also do my schoolwork, which is nice, because it frees me up at home to spend time with the wife and boy.

Ah Nightshift ..........

3.30am ring the bossman who bollocked you:

"Excuse me boss, but last time you told me off because I made the wrong decision, please tell me what to do about this?"

3.45am

'Rinse and repeat'

4.05am

you get the picture ..............

If they don't like your decisions then you need clear instructions of what to do in a 'procedures manual'.

If you are not getting paid 'management money' you don't make decisions.

Well, my boss is pretty cool for the most part. She doesn't care what I do to entertain myself on the shift, as long as I'm not watching dirty movies in the lobby or anything retarded like that. She lets me bring my laptop to do my schoolwork, so that's a fair trade for occasionally having to do a chore.

My History teacher didn't know who Genghis Khan was, thought Keynes was a socialist and claimed the Irish immigration to the USA was because of religious reasons, she had never heard of the Potato Famine. Religious reasons! She clamied the CATHOLIC Irish fled to the PROTESTANT USA because they had problems with the PROTESTANT UK... I've looked it up on a few sites and found that the Irish were the first immigrants to be looked down upon, BECAUSE OF THE RELIGIOUS DIFFERENCES!

I always make fun of her in class and now she uses every excuse to make me lose points. Guess what... I was eight minutes too late at the exam yesterday. Word is she's giving me a 50% maximum because of that.

See, this thread is fun....

A great way to discuss and vent frustrations.   :closed-eyes:

A bit of history about me.  I suffer from migraines.  That being said I usually get 2-3 a week.  I just typically suffer through them unless they are really bad.  (I had one so bad once, I had a slight stroke.)  Now that you guys know that, and my work problems weren't enough, I was driving home with a headache yesterday morning after work, and my vision went a little blurry. I rubbed them thinking it was because I was tired.  The left eye suddenly had something in it, and I looked into the mirror, and there was a bloody flap of tissue from my lower eyelid covering my eye lens.  I rubbed it again, and it went back to "normal"  turns out I have been bleeding behind my eye.  And since I live in the US, I can not afford the doctor.  So, I am worried that it may be something serious.  Probably isn't, but I am still worried.

One the weekend, I was trying to pry to pieces of wood apart with a knife. Slipped, took a bunch of skin off my left thumb. Wouldn't stop bleeding. Went to the Medical Centre, got it looked at, cleaned and bandaged. All free.

Well first aid stuff like that is no problemo.

If you have a terminal disease that costs mucho dinero for pharmaca and machines that you need to stay alive it gets problematic. It gets even more problematic if you offer that free healthcare to people that never paid a cent into that healthcare pool.

You could start wild guesses how much it costs to treat a cancer patient. (if you donīt like guessing games it is several hundred thousand euros per year depending which cancer you have).

I would like to complain about a lot of things, but the main complaint I have:  not enough time to paint, and eyes that wear out too quickly. 
On a side note an old gent once advised me that if I didn't like my life to; "change your environment, or your reaction to it" as he explained, what bothered me, didn't bother him, so obviously (to him), the problem was my reaction to the "environment/situation".
and that if it was something that bothered other people also, then it was an environment issue that needed to be changed.  I don't know if this makes sense to anyone reading this, but it mad sense to me,  and by th by; environment does not in this case refer to the meteorlogical condition or climate change.   :icon_biggrin: steveb

Yeah, I get Migraines a few times a month, and usually I can self-medicate them away. It's just that the only non-prescription pain-killer that even remotely works is Advil, and I don't have it here at work. This was just a normal headache though, so I was able to take some tylenol and now I'm feeling awesome!  :happy:

I used to get horrible migraines, and haven't since I started an allergy regimen. I would look into what causes them if I were you.

That said, what did the most good for me was mental exercises, like imagining the pain draining out of a pipe or somesuch. I don't know why, but if I was just lying there in excruciating pain it helped a lot.

After a bit of retrospect I think I'll take your advice, Things seem to be progessing well on all fronts however for him and the family, and as for the, umm other things they are going along just nicely too.  It's good to have friends.

on a slightly different tangent, during the move from Edm. to Victoria, Jason's moving semi tractor was involved in an accident in Kelowna, it seems some twit in a pickup truck couldn't wait 7 seconds for the semi to go through an intersection first at a light and cut it off.  This caused the semi and B train trailers to swerve clipping the truck and careening into another 2 vehicles rolling sideways into the median and catching fire with a car trapped underneath one of the trailers. 

Jas and the rest of the family were already on the island and had been for 3 days.  The driver of the truck is being charged criminally for negligent driving causing death, (poor unfortunate guy in the car under the trailer) among several other things.  Alcohol seems to have been involved.

his unit destination issues seem also to have been resolved favourably too, and the injuries from the IED have completely healed.

Post by: der Hurenwiebel on June 26, 2010, 12:20:29 AM
injuries from IED have healed?!

yes on the 11th of April Jason's section was out hunting for bad guys.   They were moving forward into an incompletely patrolled new zone, and while Jason and a few others in his section were crouched behind heavy cover private Todd advanced only to be detonated by an antitank IED less than 10 feet from where Jason was hunkered down behind an earthen wall with 2 others from his section.  At that distance the explosion didn't register so much as a sound as a physical force which passed through all 3 men causing several soft tissue injuries from the hydrostatic shockwave.  Private Todd meanwhile simply vanished, the IED explosion bathing everybody within about 100 meters in itty bitty bits of Tyler.  Jason's reaction?  Anger and vengeance.  Coupled very tighly to, holy shit do I ever fucking well hurt like pure hell right now.   For those who want specifics the IED was another of the Taliban antitank specials, which was a 6 pack of russian 155mm class howitzer rounds series wired to each other set underneath about 300 gallons of HME ammonia nitrate fuel oil mixture.  Detonated with a cell phone, low tech indeed, hah.  It's amazing the amount of damage that can be absorbed by 6 feet of clay mud wall.  Oh yeah they were in the Dand district of the Panjwai.

Jas meanwhile has no PTSD except that he wants to go back in the worst way, but has the sense of a vet to know he has to be ready first.  And some other things locally have to be resolved before he leaves the country again.  umm stuff happened while he was away that makes all of the above fade to insignificance.

I won't go into the "stuff" but I guess I have a sneaking suspicion - to which I hope I'm just playing to a cliche and not the truth.

But that sucks about Pvt. Todd and I'm really glad your brother was "ok" or at least will recover without any physical complications.

I agree with you. It has been 17 years since I accidentally caused the death of my younger brother. Stuff like that brings the little moments into perspective. It also teaches you the meaning of both guilt, and forgiveness. Especially when the person it is hardest to forgive is yourself. My wife says she is continually amazed at my ability to see the best intentions in the actions of people. I find that it is easier to see the posibilities of their side in things when you have been guilty of dreadful actions yourself. I am very glad your brother is okay. I hope he does not let himself feel responsible for his friend, and that his anger will remain at the senselessness of the violence, but not burn him up inside either. It can be easy to let such a thing consume you.

Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Nicholas Bies on June 28, 2010, 09:19:43 AM
So i've got a situation at work.

I've currently in my notice period having resigned on the 02Jun. I used to help with our Packages dept. before moving to ticketing sales and advertising. The head of packages is on leave and her underling quite (more on this later). So I've been asked to stay, which I said I would until the 9th of July (as I have already booked and paid for my flight to Australia on the 11th of July).

Either way I'm happy to work because I could use the cash.

Now last month (may) I had a really troublesome client who has been calling and canceling flights since January. I had made a booking for her on Jet Airways HKG-DEL (hong kong -delhi) for mid-June.

When I returned to the office (was off 10-24May) my manager who had taken over my files told me the deadline for a NEW booking (same routing and airline) was due today. Which means we need to pay the airline/issue the ticket etc. so I went ahead and issued the ticket in what was a very busy day (as catching up on 10 says worth of files, emails and itineraries will be). Anyway I failed to review the ticket and notice that the flight time had changed from 1750hrs to 1940hrs.

My client then cried FOUL! about the time change saying it was too late and that she refused to pay as she had booked a flight at an earlier time and no one had mentioned the time change (notice here the Manager failed to tell me AND the client that the flight had changed time).

Either way we had to issue for a refund which is HKD600 (approx 100AUD). To which I am being charged as I issued the ticket, my manager was good enough to say that she would split it with me 50/50.

Anyway I am 99% sure that my company doing this is against the law and kind of a dicky thing to do anyway. Today I applied for a refund and there's been no mention of payment on my side I'm wondering if that means they just clandestinely deduct it from my salary.

So I'm currently gearing myself up to tell my boss (who is one of my best mates mum's) to go get fucked and unless she refunds my salary I'll be taking her to the Labour Courts + I'll just walk out and leave her in the lurch in regards to the Packaging dept.

As it stands I just lost 1/2 a days salary because i was 5 minutes late for 5 times this month (as in I start at 9 and I arrived at 9.05 5 times...the latest I've been was 9.20) to which my boss and accounting is disregarding the fact that I've turned up for the last couple of Saturdays and working till 8pm 2-3 nights a week incl. the last 3 Fridays (we're not paid overtime) AND am working past my notice (which pissed my new boss off).

I can't wait to get out of this office.

so I just got slapped in the face...

that refund charge after I made a complaint against it to which I was told it would be "reviewed" the boss has decided I should pay the entire 600 for not checking the ticket before sending it.

And tomorrow morning I'm meant to have a meeting with a school in Hong Kong, an expat school which has multiple school trips around Asia and the world each year. I contacted them, I organized the meeting, it's my brain child. I've just been told I'm not going to this meeting (which was to be me, my friend in sales and the bosses son who wants to learn so he can take over). Now it will just be the other two...

So I don't get to cultivate my biggest client ever, I get docked 1/3rd my salary and they happily smile and ask me to stay on for 2 extra weeks because they're short staffed.

---- so I think bitching to my mate (who happens to be my boss's son) has worked as she called me into her office and told me I was to go to the meeting as I "organized it you should be there for the meeting"

a tad less angry. Plus I got a copy of 8th ed (as did the various people who contacted me) so I've got that to read tonight!

AC2 is great, better than the original in all aspects but one (IMO of course), the way group combat goes.

In AC1 opponents were very likely to start chopping you in the back when you were busy with one of their buddies in the front.

In AC2 they tend to just hover around and wait until you slay their buddy, which makes it a bit of 'combat in sequence'. THIS (http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20100326) comic illustrates my point.
It's a pity becasue it means you don't need a lot of the excellent new combat moves you learn, you just bludgeon people to death most of the time.

One other thing that I find better in AC1. Archer guards. they've almost diappeared in AC2 while they make a nice challenge for the rooftop sneaker
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Warlord on June 29, 2010, 12:56:07 PM
Agree. I liked combat better in AC1. Was more fluid. Didn't need to hit them a certain amount before you could kill them. And yes, they were more active at attacking your back if you weren't careful.

You don't need to either in AC2, it's just that your attacks can actually be parried/defended by the guards some times instead of always working like in AC1. Besides, the gazillion new moves make combat - at least to me - a hundred times better in part 2. In AC1 it was nice for the first few times, until you had mastered the counter-kill timing. Then it was just endless repetition of the same handful of animations. Not that part 2 is much different in that respect, but there are so many different weapons and kill animations that combat remains entertaining for a long time despite being so easy.

Some of the people in this group are the most incompetent and uneducated I've ever worked with.  I not only wonder how they were able to become a team lead, making significantly more than me... but how they tie their shoes in the morning.

Why does a team lead come to a mid level engineer on a daily basis asking for advice on how to do things.  Sad thing is, it isn't even my team.

Post by: BAWTRM on July 02, 2010, 10:12:31 AM
Really? My graduation wasn't sparkling or anything, just 2 speeches, everybody being called forward to recieve their graduation and then just chatting with your friends, teachers you'll never see again, talk about future plans. And of course, later that night there was the graduation party organized by the school. Followed over the next couple of days by some more student organized graduation parties. And then there were 2 weeks of sunny Italy with my (then) girlfriend. Excellent period!

Post by: Von Breden on July 02, 2010, 11:11:19 AM
We got to see our teachers drunk (again) and later they took those of us who were left to a local bar from which we got kicked out at 2.30 am. Good times indeed. The graduation itself was boring though, our school principal doesn't know "intonation"...
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Obi on July 02, 2010, 11:19:46 AM
No, graduation itself was nice. Everybody was called forward and received a little speech from their mentor. Then they got their diploma etc. Followed by some drinks at school, of course. But it's unhappy for two reasons:

1) It was 30 degrees outside, and we were sitting with more than 300 people in a church designed for about 250. So we were sweating like otters (  :wink: )

2) It means school's over, which is kind of sad really. I mean I'm happy to go to university, but school was pretty damn cool as well.

University is way cooler than school if you are independent-minded. Nobody tells you what to do. Nobody to blame if you screw up but yourself (though people keep trying to shift the blame, of course).

Depending on your subject, the girls may be prettier, too.

So Obi, where will you study medicine? And will you be moving out to a student flat or something?

Going to Uni was great for me. I went to Wageningen and I went from a little attic room at home to 16 square meters in a nice student corridor. First time we went to look at it (me and my parents IIRC, I know my mother was definately there) )there were 4 Cannabis plants on the window sill and some hard core porn pictures on the wardrobe closet featuring this big fat black chick and a purple dildo. :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol:

Yeah, the rooms had old style locks with 'fat' keys and they were a bit worn out through 25 years of use. My own key could open 6 out of the 10 rooms on that corridor, my neighbour could open 8 out of 10!! Very handy if you'd forgotten/lost your key.

LOL! I;m net moving out just yet, as I'll be studying in Utrecht, which means I'll be at the uni within 40 minutes from my house. I'll start looking for a room somewhere during the first year, around Christmas or so. Of course that depends- if I join the corps (not sure about what I'll join yet, might be the sailing or rowing as well) I'll probably try to find a room straightaway!
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: BAWTRM on July 02, 2010, 01:43:42 PM
A corps would also make it possible to join a particular corps house (in which you'll likely start in an itty-bitty small room but progress to ever more grander as you become a house senior) this will evade the usual waiting list for renting a room or has that gone away since my brother studied in Utrecht? He had an almost 2 year waiting list and then he could get a room in the freshly build Uithof student facilities.

Well since everyone else is sharing I will share also...

Minor complant:
I am doing long distance with my girl friend, she is in Okinawa, I am in Virginia until sunday.
I love her a lot, but I hate be so far away from her.

Major complaint:
I am going to be a freshmen student at an Engineer School (but you can not guess which state!)
all my federal/state funding has been suspended, because my father (who is in the Marine Corps) had a weird taxes last year, because he was in Iraq for most of the year.  The funding office seems to think I am trying to cheat the system to get a free education.

BTW I graduated from High School with Honors (my reward was the Empire Army Box!)

So know I have to go in on Monday and talk with the College.

To top things off because of our recent move we do not have all the information they want.  Some of it is en-route the rest was somehow sent to California (still do not know how TMO pulled that one off.

Wow it feels good to vent!

Ouch...that is one unhappy thought, if it makes you feel any better, I have thought quite a bit about having an affair after being married for 7 years...but I don't want to be "that guy".  And, at the risk of sounding "like a woman"  it is about feeling a connection with someone, and knowing they actually care about you without biting your head off/critising you every chance they get...but, enough about my problems...

I would say, think hard about what each woman provides for you, and how you feel about them.  then make an  decision based on that. 

Is it better to be miserable for a short time, then happy, or be miserable for the rest of your life?  (Unfortunately, I think I sometimes chose the latter.)

Well, good news that I'm not the only one. Sorry to hear things aren't working out for you  :icon_sad:

tl;dr: stretch is b*tching. Colourful comments to follow

I've been with this girl for two and a half years, and I'm always feeling like she's trying to change me. It's mostly just little things, but I can't help get the feeling they'd be bigger ones if she thought she could get away with it. Then there's the other things....she's got all these plans of being married by 23 (three years from now), two kids and the house by 27...meanwhile, I haven't decided what country I intend to be living in, let alone what state. Nor am I particularly taken with the idea of multiple kids. Hell, I'm a cat person who hates dogs, and she's a dog person who's allergic to cats.

I've talked to a few friends about it, and the overwhelming theme there is end it/we knew it was coming. Hmm. I'm yet to have anyone even try to convince me that things'll work out. I talked it over with one of my friends over a couple of drinks the other night...she's something like 10/10 for predicting these sort of things (yeah, hardly the most reliable option) and she told me she'd known it would end up like this two years ago. Woot. We then proceeded to debate the merits my "perfect" girl would have...she unknowingly described this girl from work. You know, who I've been checking out for 6+ months. *sigh*

So now I'm kinda debating where to go with this. I'm venting on an Internet board (thanks to whoever makes it through this far) and I'm talking to a mutual friend of the work girl at work to find out if she actually has a boy friend (which interestingly has never come up. Damnit.)
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: wissenlander on July 14, 2010, 10:50:18 AM
My experience as an outsider on this is that if someone has a rigid plan in life and aren't willing to change that plan (married at a certain age, kids at a certain age) then it usually leads to mega problems.  If the plan is more important than what is actually happening in life then that's not good, IMO.  It's fine to have that plan, but an unwillingness to relent from that path for a little while is just bad news.  Both parties have to agree to it, and unfortunately sometimes reality tells you that you may need to hold off another year or two on something (or move even faster in some cases).

I'm not sure of your total situation, Auberoun, but I applaud your restraint.  I know that can be tough.

Oh boy, that's tough my friend from oz. I think what wiss said is a good way to look at things.

One note though: it's IMO a shame you'll might leave your current GF for another woman, it'd be better to just break up. Makes you look less of a douchebag, but I guess that's not really an option :wink:

And remember: all things end badly. Otherwise they wouldn't end.

You don't say how old you are Stretch - I mean if she's 20 and you're 50 then whayhey ..........  :engel:

No seriously  -  way too young.
Women Girls change a lot around 22/23.

Generally I think up to then they look for a bloke to show them a good time, then the hormones kick in and they are looking for someone who will be solid 'nest-making' material.
Sometimes they don't realise there is a difference and expect laid-back-Larry to turn into MR Super-Salary-Sammy overnight.  :icon_wink:

I was 33 before I got married - 36 for the first son.
Plenty of time to experience all sorts, and then ready to settle.

I do believe that the decision to marry encompasses being ready for family - you are stating that this is the woman you will be happy to have children with and that means it is for the long term.

I've been with this girl for two and a half years, and I'm always feeling like she's trying to change me. It's mostly just little things, but I can't help get the feeling they'd be bigger ones if she thought she could get away with it. Then there's the other things....she's got all these plans of being married by 23 (three years from now), two kids and the house by 27...meanwhile, I haven't decided what country I intend to be living in, let alone what state. Nor am I particularly taken with the idea of multiple kids. Hell, I'm a cat person who hates dogs, and she's a dog person who's allergic to cats.

I've talked to a few friends about it, and the overwhelming theme there is end it/we knew it was coming. Hmm. I'm yet to have anyone even try to convince me that things'll work out. I talked it over with one of my friends over a couple of drinks the other night...she's something like 10/10 for predicting these sort of things (yeah, hardly the most reliable option) and she told me she'd known it would end up like this two years ago. Woot. We then proceeded to debate the merits my "perfect" girl would have...she unknowingly described this girl from work. You know, who I've been checking out for 6+ months. *sigh*

Sounds like you are in a relationship with a possessive girl and have a crush on somebody else.

Scratch that. 6 months in the same workplace and you still are interested? Sounds like a bit more than a crush.

Don't stay with a girl just out of laziness, or because you shy from the confrontation...

I think you might have just summarised the whole thing in two sentences. Well played  :eusa_clap:

However, there's always the qualifier that I never rush into anything. 6 months is relatively normal...especially since I've spent a bit of time getting to  know her friends.

I'm talking to a mutual friend of the work girl at work to find out if she actually has a boy friend (which interestingly has never come up. Damnit.)

I am not sure whether basing your decision on the question whether work girl has a boyfriend or not is the right thing to do.

First question should be: Do you feel at ease with your current girlfriend or not / can you imagine a happy long-term relationship with her or not?
If you do not feel at ease with her, it wouldn't be fair to waste your and her time anyway, irrespective of work girl being single or not.

Oh, I'm not basing it solely on that. It's simply a factor in the decision.

Sweet baby Ray's...

I went into the dentist earlier to get my wisdom teeth removed (all 5 of them...) and in the course of removing the bottom right tooth my jaw fractured.  It was only a hairline, but they weren't able to finish.  They had to wire my jaw shut and I'll be this way for at least 3 weeks with a possibility of 6.  Hurts like the dickens, but I've got some decent pain medication that doesn't make me feel like I'm constantly listening to Janis Joplin music.  I hope to be in decent shape in a couple of days.  Though when I go back to get the others removed, if that is, the same thing may occur.  I guess I couldn't be a boxer with this glass jaw.  But, even though this is quite unhappy I'm still keeping my spirits up and thankful that it went as well as it did.  It could always be worse.  The dentist is actually quite good and did inform me that there was a possibility of this happening, so it's not a huge shock.

If you can get to the beam, staple a towel to the beam below where the water starts and around the beam with a good bit hanging down.  Put a bucket below the towel.  The towel absorbs the water, gravity and soaking will pull the water down and drip into the bucket.

Gives you time to fix the leak.

Dad found the problem. They made a mistake when they made the roof over 20 years ago with the drainage. It is an easy fix, but we don't have any spare roof tiles, and my dad don't want to risk to break one while fixing the leak without having a spare one. Now he just need to find some that fits...

So, an update on my... 'situation'

Her mutual friend at work has informed me that work girl has a boyfriend in a long-term, COMMITTED relationship (not my capitalisation) and basically implied that I'm scum of the earth for even considering leaving my girlfriend and should never speak to either of them again. Wonderful. Take that whatever shred of optimism you had that this was going to work out in some way or another.

In retrospect, shouldn't have done squat for the moment. Goddamn rush of blood to the head. So probably not in a good place this afternoon.

Dunno what I'm gonna do. I want to end things with my current gf, but....**** it.

*** it, I'm going for a run. Clear my head. Out.

This is always the problem - people run one problem into another.

First thing IS to deal with your current girlfriend - if you are not happy then end it.
If you are just daydreaming about something better, and this is where 'other girl' has got in the way then get back to working on the current relationship.
I suspect you are not happy.

When that is done and dusted and a suitable time has elapsed, you are free to explore other options.

I am quite interested by 'mutual friend's' strong reaction -
a) Were you that unsubtle asking about the other girl's relationship status? (Typical Aussie male :engel: )
b) Did you come on too strong showing your interest in the other girl?
c) Why are you scum of the earth?

If other girl has been pretty friendly for 6 months - was there ever any flirting, any innuendo?

It is possible that 'mutual friend' reacted strongly, because:
1. She thinks other girl might actually be interested in you, and she is 'protecting' her.
2. She fancies you herself.

Sounds fascinating - Dr Midaski is intrigued.

Amazing how a hard run clears your head.

So Dr....

That's the current plan anyway. End things at least somewhat gracefully and see how things are looking on the other side. You're right - I'm running one issue into another, which has blown up in my face. It could actually be a good thing....at least this was handled somewhat quietly and the **** won't hit the fan at work - even if I am person non grata around reception.

Mutual friend's (should call her ex-mutual friend, as she quite bluntly informed me that I'm not to speak to her again. Period. End of story. Sexual harassment charges were implied kind of thing never again) reaction...

a) Probably ballsed this one, as I didn't even enquire about current relationship status
b) I wouldn't have said it was too strong - I was asking about the odds of accepting an invite for a drink - hell, might have even been *too* light-hearted.
c) Two parter - 1. Was dumb enough to ask this *before* ending things with current gf (who mutual friend knows about thanks to Facebook). 2. Work girl has a bf and how dare I even think about a taken girl.

And for the second one, strong neither. For 1., see c). For 2., mutual friend has a boyfriend

Your diagnosis Doc? I'm leaning on cutting my losses and dropping the whole thing. It'll suck short term....but live and learn right?

So I just destroyed it with a girl I really like...


edit-

thought I should elaborate.

So known this girl for a while, mentioned her before here as well. Anyway met up when I was in aus last week. Hung out abit then later that night htings got frisky but I couldn't really stand to attention so she kicked me out of her house at 4am (sort of understandably...) As I live near the gap the words "where can I get alcohol at 4 am and take me to the gap" didn't really fill my cabbie with confidence (the gap is a big suicide spot).

anyway, some reason she gave me a 2nd chance and we hung out again and as I was home alone after seeing a film we went back to mine.

THINGS WENT AWESOMELY WELL LIKE FAAAAAAAAAAAARK.

really awesome umm but the next night I was with my best mate and we opened our bottle of 95% alcohol we got in Rome for our 21sts (T17 get some it's incredible just make sure you mix it or if you down bottle caps do it straight because it burns the fark out of your mouth if you leave it resting for a while - found that out the hard way).

So pissed out of my brain I texted her and she replied in a snarky manner to which I sent:

"I'm a born winner, I was put on this earth to make a difference, to be the best you have to beat the best and I'm undefeated. My style is everlasting. I'm never going to back down. I win, you loose. The world is mine."

she replied:

"oh honey, idea of you beating me in anything is ridiculous and I only hung out with you because I was bored and now you're boring why bother"

tried to call her in the morning after but she never picked up... ouch.

Best bet is to always quote a really great movie or TV show. You can never go wrong with Spaceballs or Arrested Development quotes. Try to stear clear of the more obscure films and shows, though. Invader Zim is hilarious, but it will only get you into the pants of a specific demographic.

"She's going from suck to blow!" isn't a great pick-up line either...
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: shavixmir on July 26, 2010, 08:51:53 AM
I think one of the best pick-up lines I ever heard was:

"What's a girl like you doing in a place like this?"
"It's not so bad."
"Yeah. That's what I mean, what are you doing here?"

I think it was in a film.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: BAWTRM on July 26, 2010, 10:49:58 AM
The best pick-up line I've ever heard is in Dutch so it'll need some explaining, it goes:

"Ik heb geen openingszin, maar jij hebt een opening en ik heb zin."

Openingszin is Dutch for pick-up line

Basically, before the comma it reads: "I don't have a pick-up line,..."

The rest of the sentence is a bit of wordplay concerning different meanings of the same word.

'Opening' is rather similar to its English meaning. It can refer to a start, like in 'opening gambit'. An opening is also a word for a hole, be it an opening between a line of troops, the entrance to a tent or a crack in the floor that shows you the floor below.

'Zin' means 'sentence' in Dutch. So 'openingszin' is literally 'starting sentence', so the line with which you start the conversation. The term can be used for any conversation but mostly relates to pick-up lines.

However, 'zin' also means something along the lines of 'wanting something pleasurable'. "Ik heb zin in taart" means "I'd like some cake". Without a topic to refer to in the same or a previous sentence though 'zin' plainly refers to sex. I want to have sex.

So the whole of the above sentence can be translated like: "I don't have a pick-up line, but you've got a hole and I want sex." Much better in Dutch you'll agree.  :icon_wink:
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Midaski on July 26, 2010, 11:40:28 AM
You could make it a lot better in english if you dropped the word 'pick-up'

"I don't have an opening line, but you have an opening I'd like a lot"

Funnel clouds outside my apartment complex yesterday. luckily nothing touched down. We have been without power since 3pm saturday, its 9am monday and we finally got it back. I am watching over an orphaned white kitten while my girlfriend is at class. I have to make sure the bigger tabby cat doesnt kill the little dude.  On a lighter note the little white kitten (Apollo is what we are calling him) is sticking to me like glue as if I was her mommy.  I'll post some pics up in the pet picture thread once I've loaded them up.  The kitten strangely has one blue eye and one green...and wont seem to shut up if I am not around!  Couldnt sleep last night. too hot and the kitten was crying for a better part of the night.

Not uncommon, especially in white female cats. Both blue and green eyes are caused by a lack of pigmentation in the iris. In the case of one green and one blue eye, it is a form of heterochromia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterochromia). It's the same genetic phenomenon that produces calico cats (which are almost always female). See also: Odd-Eyed Cat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odd-eyed_cat).

Something that is actually unhappy, for me, as opposed to my boringness which I find to be quite 'exciting'...

A co-worker is heading back to his home state of California.  He ended up becoming a very good friend, and my one consistent gaming buddy.  With the advent of 8th edition changes and his departure it made the perfect storm where I have grown very tired of this hobby.  On top of that, for his going away lunch we are going to a Mexican restaurant.  I love Mexican food, but I cannot partake as my jaw is still wired shut.  Generally we go to places for departure lunches that I wouldn't really care to go to on my own, but this is a nice exception (oh the cruel irony). 

I think I will have blended chili tonight, though, so it may not be so bad.  As long as it doesn't have the same texture as blended macaroni and cheese. :eusa_sick:

hahah well we're a special breed!

My place made the news last night and this morning in the papers for being flooded. Our complex driveway has a dip and then rise. The front gates were entirely covered in water and firemen had to rescue 10 wokers at a construction sight next door. Turns out the construction work had fucked all the drainage (we live at the bottom of a hill) so with the massive thunderstorm we got on wednesday everything just started piling up.

Took my dog for a walk in the evening and lost my favourite pair of flip-flops in the foot deep mud.

I care about it. Are you sure you're eating enough? Because you don't look like you could afford to lose weight. Stay in bed if possible, and be sure to get enough vitamis. Fresh fruit are preferable, but pill work as well to a certain extent. Also, make sure you drink enough water or tea, but nothing with crystal sugar, because it nourishes bacteria. Hot camille tea with honey and some lemon juice works best.

I trust her, I just dont trust this mother fucker.  This time she feels he over stepped his boundaries.  She confronted him about it and he blew it off and said she could sleep on the floor. I wish I was there, I'd go cro magnon on him.  When she first woke up to go to the bathroom, she thought it was someone else but when she returned, it was him with his shirt off. She was equally as pissed and just left and grabbed some breakfast.

I'm content in knowing that if some asshole did that to my wife she would have elbowed him accross the throat several times, "to ensure a peaceful night sleep"  :icon_twisted: then dealt with the repurcussions in the morning. 


on the other note you should confront this mother fucker because HE obviously  has absolutely no respect or fear of you. if he had any respect or fear of you he wouldn't have even spoken with her let alone tried to slither into her bed.  Oh wait he DID do that, SEEE? 


I suggest striding directly up to him and without preamble of any kind punching him directly in the throat, step through shoving him onto his back, headbutting him in the nose.... whatever seems to fit best for you, then immediately continuing with WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARRRRRRE!!!!!  If ever there was an appropriate time to come un-fucking-hinged at another man this is it.  Over stepped his boundaries?!?! WTF overstepping his boundaries is stepping into a room where an attached girl or girls are sleeping, setting up camp in a foreign country is what he did.  You should go cro mag on him.

This is not a time for tea and crumpets or even a slap across the face, it's a time for war, are you ready for war?  How fiery is that heart of yours?  Or is she not actually worth it?  If so, fight to defend her assaulted honor.

I trust you haven't seen him at all yet, if you have and just given him dirty looks the initiative is lost.  It can be days after the event but the first thing you have to do when you see him for the first time is physically confront him even if it gets you in shit, because not only is that right but it is also defensible.

As Midaski said, there's little you can do about it now so no need to give yourself a cardial attack thinking about it. Talk with your gf, confront the guy when they're back, and make it clear you don't want stuff like that happening ever again. No need for violence if he agrees with you and walks away, if he keeps doing it, he's clearly not worth good manners so you can indeed go "cro magnon" on him.

Oh, and don't forget your gf is probably entirely capable of making it clear to the guy that his behaviour is unwanted. As I said, no need for you to perform any violence right away - your gf can do the honours if she wants to.  :wink:

One important question here is what were the sleeping arrangements - are we talking a private bedroom, or a communal dormitory type set up?

It's very close to sexual assault, and definitely harrassment.

It was a hotel in a small town, they rented 2 rooms.  My girlfriend was the first to go to bed, The girls decided to all go in the room she wasnt staying in for some reason, the dude went into her room and climbed in with her, one gay dude stayed with the girls and the other stayed in her room in a cot.  Last night one of the gay dudes gave up his cot for her, but seriously where were her "friends" at this point?

nah the gift was some alcohol because I had said "i could really use a drink" during this whole ordeal.

I got a clearer story of what happened now.  There was only 1 room  with 2 beds and a cot.  She went to bed first.  Then her friend katie got in the other bed.  Marley (it was her birthday) had a decision here, do I get in bed with michelle, or katie.  Being that katie is the only single female in the group, I am assuming this is why marley got in bed with katie.  From what I am told the dude keeps changing his story of why he got in bed with my girl.  My girl thought it was Antjuan (her best friend who is gay) and thought the dude was on the floor and the other gay dude was in the cot.  She woke to use the bathroom and when she came back the dude was the one in the bed, and he was shirtless. There was no way she could go back into that bed at that point and went out to get some breakfast.

She told Antjuan how uncomfortable she was about what the dude had done, especially since He knows that she has a boyfriend.  Antjuan agrees it was messed up.  They go swimming and my girlfriend is able to swim across the potomac river and he is all trying to impress her by doing the same and try to act like he awesome and stuff.  My girlfriend confronts him saying that he was over stepping his boundaries and that what he did was disrespectful to me and to her.  Now this guy has been trying to steal her from day one and is no big fan of me because I am her boyfriend.  He said he felt like he did nothing wrong and that she shouldn't feel uncomfortable with him and that there is no way he is sleeping on the floor, so if she does feel uncomfortable then she should sleep on the floor.  She tells him that she can no longer hang out with him if he keeps disrespecting me.  He says whateve4r and she tells him to fuck off.  the rest of her friends feel like this is none of their business and dont say anything.

Come night fall she asks everyone if she really does have to sleep on the floor.  Colwin (the other gay guy in the group) offered his cot to her and he slept on the floor.  Good man.  I am left wondering: Why didnt Marley invite me to this thing?  We have all hung out together at one time or another but she is going to invite my girlfriend, a bunch of girls and gay guys AND the one straight guy who has had the hots for my girlfriend since september '09?! And why the hell did Marley happen to leave out that she invited him when my girlfriend asked "who will be going" because she originally did not want to go if he was there and I wasn't.

And why the fuck did katie get in her own bed instead of with my girlfriend, so as to establish the "boys and girls" beds. Some friend Katie is, leaving michelle to the boys.

well as i stated she didnt know he was going to be there, and neither did I.  Had she known she would not have gone.  I did warn her to be careful because he might try to do something.  She said she would, and she was.  Its not like she knowingly let him jump in bed with her, and when she realized what had happened she didnt jump back into bed.  She always resisted his advances or brought it to light (even before we were dating when he would try to put his arm around her she'd say "um what are you doing? get your arm off me")  You seem to not be giving her the benefit of the doubt, but that is because you do not know their backstory.

They are both from the same town and knew the same people but never really met until she came to college park.  He developed a bit of a crush for her, though she never had feelings for him.  He threw a party and she was a bit too drunk to drive.  He offered his bed and that he would sleep on the couch.  when she laid down to sleep, he jumped in bed with her and they talked alot.  he then kissed her, she felt VERY awkward and pushed him off and told him she didn't like him like that.  This occured 2 months before me and her ever met. He has sinced still tried to impress her or, like the example in the first paragraph, try to make a "move"a week before me and her started dating he dropped by and told her he was moving to college park and was going to attend college (mind you he is 27 and she is 20.  he also has a kid with a girl but she broke up with him because he was a deadbeat).  While he was visiting he was laying it on very thick with his flirting; laughing at not very funny jokes/anecdotes she told, trying to put his arm around her, and other things like that.  All with in my presence.  She did push back his advances but wrote it off as him not having many friends and was trying to be friendly (because she thought she set him straight months ago).

Once me and her started dating he was always a concern of mine.  She had no intentions of ever doing anything with this guy and also felt he was very dumb and annoying at times (all do to him trying to impress her from what I saw). He would pop by every now and again to hang out with her and would try to when I wasn't around. A few times he would call asking to hang out and she would say "I can't I am doing homework, unless you want to come over and do homework too." but instead of bringing homework, he would bring beer.  She wouldn't drink and it would just further the awkwardness and annoy her that she was trying to study and he would be trying to get her drunk.  I made it clear that I didn't like or trust this guy.  She views him as her only friend in college park, as all her other friends still reside in annapolis and never went to college.  She did understand my concern but assured me nothing was going to happen.  I trust her, I have no reason not to and I understand that she doesnt really have and friends in college park.

One day on my way home I had but dialed turning off my phone.  She had thought I was mad at her and was ignoring her (it was an honest mistake, she had kicked me out of her room the night before because I couldnt stop snoring and she had an exam the next morning.  I wasn't mad but she was worried I was).  When I got off the bus I walked a friend home as we were in deep conversation.  After I dropped my friend off at his place (not far away from my place) I pulled out my phone to see if she had texted me only to find out my phone was off.  I turned it on and my phone blew up with texts from her thinking I was mad at her and playing mind games with her.  All the while the dude just so happened to stop by and saw she was upset with me and asked her "why are you 2 even still dating!" as if our relationship was doom to fail at the start and trying to turn her against me.  I called her and explained to her what had happened and that I was neither mad at her, nor playing mind games and that it was a total misunderstanding.  She was no longer mad but when I arrived and saw him there I was not happy because I didnt want him over if she was mad at me.  That night she told me what he said and I pointed out what his intentions where based on what he had said and his actions before hand.  She said she would never hang out with him alone any more.  She is trying to hold onto her 1 friend in town while appeasing me.

About a month ago or so she threw a party because she had successfully did the mile swim in the cheasapeak bay.  She went to bed a bit early before her guests had left and I remained as host.  The dude was still there and was not good enough to drive, but was not relinquishing his keys to me.  So I got him more drunk to make him pass out and sleep it off (I out drank this pansy too by the way).  I took care of his drunk ass despite the fact I hate this guy. I covered him with a blanket, talked him through trying to rest, and tried to get him to puke in the bucket (which he was refusing to do half the time).  he went to the bathroom and fell, ripping the towel rack off the wall and bending the shower curtain which woke my girlfriend up.  We both tried to take care of him and get him to puke in the bucket and not the floor!  We finally sent him on his way.  My girlfriend called him the next day and explained what he did and what i did.  he denied doing anything despite the fact that I and her seen him do it.  He finally came over and helped clean (and by help clean he showed up and sat on the couch).  While I was out trying to get some carpet cleaner my girlfriend scolded him for being an asshole and "this is why I love my boyfriend, he is no fan of you but he still took care of you as if you were his brother, and you always seem to try to disrespect him every chance you get!"  he has shaped up since.  this recent road trip inccedent has destroyed their friendship because again he was disrespecting me, her, and oer stepping his boundaries, and on top of that he didnt apologize for doing it or making her uncomfortable!

It sounds to me like this Marley is no friend to you and that this Katie, at best, is an idiot, and probably is also trying to stir the pot between you this other guy and your girl friend.  I still say solve this problem with an axe.... what can I say, it's genetic.
Marley I think tried to do the right thing but failed.  katie on the other hand has always been a bit of a bitch and has always been aboutherself.  One time she called up my girlfriend asking her to come to this rave that she was going to.  my girlfriend said no because she had aleady had about 10 beers and was not good enough to drive.  katie bitched and complained and insulted her into going.  It was later revealed why katie made a big deal out of it, she needed a ride home.  Seriously what a bitch!

Really sorry to hear about that, Feanor. Such stuff seems to happen to nice guys only. I think you have managed it very well so far.

However...
If she puts herself in a position where he is ever again, it's over, over, over.  And I would tell her that, flat out.  If she has to ditch some friends to make that happen, so be it.

...our resident conservative whacko is right (sorry, jlutin :wink:).

Tell the one friend (ie the retarded gf-stealing monkey dude), the other friends either seem fine (ie, the gay dude who offered his bed) or are in a hard place to choose between two of their friends if a real fight breaks out. Not good for the atmosphere in that particular circle of friends, I'd say, so they don't deserve anyone going berserk on them as well.

Laughter belongs in the happy thread.

Fandir, what I would do in your situation is constantly bag the guy in public. I have a pretty harsh tongue when I am in the right headspace, and can be downright brutal. Stand your ground, be an absolute bastard to him, and belittle him always. He will get the message.

And ensure your GF is on board, and if he ever tries anything again, it is HER job to slap him, knee the balls, etc. If you start doing violence, that never ends well, whereas if she does, law will generally always side with her.

I know what you mean, but the law is there because of insurance purposes. It's also the same for pedestrians etc. because in a car accident, someone needs to pay for the damages. Insurance can always pay for them, ergo, the one with insurance is always wrong.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: BAWTRM on August 12, 2010, 11:40:54 AM
And that's why all people in the Netherlands are required by law to have an 'aansprakelijkheidsverzekering' (personal liability insurance?) with minors falling under the insurance of their parents.

Unfortunately this is not enforced in any way and there are probably more people out there without one than there are people who do!

And instead of adressing this problem at its root they instituted a blanket rule that the car driver is always in the wrong unless he can prove he is not, with the burden of proof lying almost 100% with the motorist. It's only in very clear cut cases (like hitting a cyclist on the freeway) that the driver is absolved of wrong.

You do not need a bike insurance to pay for damages, you just need that liability insurance.

Edit: Good one about that deportation though :icon_lol:, now if you excuse me, I need to kiss my wife farewell apparently.  :icon_wink:

WRITE LETTERS!


Seriously, me and a good friend send each other letters sure it's not as easy or modern as skype/msn/gchat/facebook etc. but the feeling of getting a letter and reading it beast conversing on each othe above (unless it involves a webcam and girl in the bath in which case that wins over a letter...)

I actually really enjoy it and far more personal imo.

This explains a lot about the sleeping arrangments that just "happened" to work out the way they did, like Soth said, her motives are clear.  Everything in hind sight bearing this in mind is more clear for me now, I'm hoping you don't need to make any fatal errors to realize that if you want to do any kind of a 3some idea with this girl it will only spell the death knell of your current relationship due to the kinds of crap this girl is willing to pull, even without a taste of your "forbidden fruit."  Even if against all probabilities your current girl gets worn down enough to go for it, don't.

Edit. So I just got a call from my old work. Apprently 2 images I used on the website www.nandatravel.com belong to Getty Images and they are now suing me and the company for 14k on copy right infringement.

It's with the lawyers now and apparently it's a big thing if I went to the site directly or from a google search and if the images were watermarked - which they weren't.

No, I have 2 weeks of induction to do.

Today, we talked for the first few hours about the project, various bits and pieces. Quite useful.
Then we went on a campus tour. Except I am have been a student there. Completely useless.
Then we had lunch
Then we had a tour of the Research commons (the library I'll be based at). Quite useful.
Then we read some of the induction bullshit on the staff intranet.
Then we faffed about for an hour.

so basically we stretched about a mornings worth of useful stuff into a whole day. They could probably do all the induction stuff in like 3 days. Or I don't know, maybe actually train me how to do my job?



On the plus side, I can get 17 days off over christmas and new year by taking 5 days leave.

Her "I dont understand how it could be confusing!"

I just friggen explain how it was confusing! Im sorry i dont live in your mind and understand what you mean ALL of the time!

My wife likes to ask me: "Don't you understand ... ?" questions. It REALLY annoys me. Like, makes me want to slap her. Which is crazy, because I am not a violent person, it just pushes my button. I have talked to her about it, but she does it anyway.

Example: We had a shortage of money. I bought lunch for myself and the boy because he was hungry, and it would have been difficult to drive home with him all cranky in rush hour traffic. She says: "Don't you understand that when we don't have a lot of money we can't spend a lot?"

Um. Yes. I do understand the concept of basic micro economics. Thank you.

I always want to come back with: "Don't you understand that the accretion disk of the super massive black hole(s) at the center of our galaxy probably play a crucial role in the active galactic nucleus phenomenon?"

You know, cuz she doesn't understand that.

Okay. Time Travel.

she would say "im not interested in science fiction, only science fact." Her weak points are history, geography, sex positions (which I love to teach her) and tech/internet culture. Also computers.  Oh and pretty much anything in the humanities departments except religious studies, shes pretty learned about that.

I'm talking about science fact, though. These are the actual scientific quandaries regarding the possibilities of time travel. The biggest obstacle is not the movement in time, it is the calculation of the movement in space because of the unpredictable nature of tiny vagaries in orbits.

As a physicist she should understand what quantum physics really means. Quantum physics in a nutshell: Anything can happen, suddenly, and for no apparent reason, without explanation, defying what we think we know about how the universe works.

Basically Quantum Physics says time travel is possible, because quantum physics says anything is possible.

Back when I was in Uni I also had to use public transport to and from my parents home. From uni this meant sitting in a bus for half an hour towards the trainstation of Ede-Wageningen, then 20 minutes by train to Utrecht, waiting 10 minutes and going by train to the station of Geldermalsen. Waiting 15 minutes and then going by train to station Gorinchem. This alone took me 2 hours and 10 minutes at its fastest.
Then I had to call my parents to ask them to come pick me up because the lost bus in their direction goes at 19:00 (which was impossible for me to ever catch and only goes once every two hours anyways).

While this was annoying enough I've had it happen to me twice while travelling back to Uni that I would have arrived at Utrecht and be waiting for the next train that I actually stepped into the wrong train, namely the Intercity to Den Bosch which took me non-stop back past Geldermalsen. Both of these times this train (which leaves from the same platform) had been delayed, though no announcement was given, the destination signs on the train itself were blank (rather common back then) and the information displays only told the people about the train to Ede-Wageningen that was about to arrive. :icon_mad:

So yeah, I probably visited my parents once every 3 or 4 weeks...

And it wasn't all finished then so I'll need to get cracking again tonight.

All this because those @#$$#% at Neckermann (postal order company, probably only known in NW Europe) can't send a message by phone or mail that they're going to deliver the ordered goods and because they obviously sell substandard products.

Still lacking the accomodation in Utrecht, but as I live in Amersfoort that's not a problem. Looking for a room, but not in a hurry. Right now I'm having an internship (more accurately, 'stage') and I need to be present at 7 a.m.  :icon_cry:

That's where the problem comes from. It's only one more week though :)

Dude, if she's pissing you off, either just tell her or dump her. Going to a stripclub won't fix your problems, only make them bigger.

Yes, it's to show us the other part of healthcare you don't really get to see as a doctor, that is primary patient care. Also to give us more of an idea how patients feel etc., but also to teach us some nifty skills about handling patients.

It's probably weeding too though.

This is what separate the boys from the pros...

You don't go to a strip club to watch naked chicks or get sex, if you have to pay for it, you are already a looser.

You go there for the prestige and how much cash you can spend.

I like the phrase "Men are from earth, women are from some other damn place." expressive without the mincing.  When I was younger I used to go to strip clubs with a sketch book for cheap beer and free nude modeling, you'd be astonished where a little piece of charcoal can take you.

Why would that matter. A few years back, me and the girl went to a Strip club together with a bunch of my friends for one of his birthdays. The group even had a back room for two private shows.

I have to agree though, their bodies are no different from regular porn. Though it is the variety of faces that I like, though thats just in general society, not just strip clubs...

I'm sorry, Feanor.

How often does this happen? Apparently she has anger issues. Is she doing something about them? Therapy, medication?
If she feels sorry about it, maybe you can talk about what she can do to control herself? That is, if you think it's worth the bother.

People can change for the better, but only if they want to.

I'm sorry mate, that's a rough day.  Same happened to me not too long ago, except she told me that when I had just flown 2,000 miles and spend 300 dollars to see her.  I wasn't particularly thrilled about that.  Just don't listen to too much sappy British pop music.  Perhaps watch LotR and have a manly drink (if of age of course!), perhaps some beef jerky, and you can weather the storm.

What's really bad is that five months may not be enough to find something you don't like about her.

Don't think that she had no flaws just because you didn't find one. No woman is perfect.

heh heh heh leering old man eyes at ya,  WELL if all your boyfriend is good for is killing mice: maybe you should PM me.  OK that's enough creepyness out of me for a while.

     SRSLY though you should dump him anyways and train your cat better, I might suggest a mouse and cat arena in the living room.  You could even get some of the others on the forum here you help you with the stadium seating for the little imaginary romans to watch from.  Your cats instincts will take over after a while and it could be an entertaining side line business wagering on how long it would take your cat to eat a certain number of mousies.

on the other hand I might just be a barbarian and you shouldn't listen to me.  It'd be F'n cool if you did though, even better if PeTA showed up in all their hypocritical glory.

Wednesday October 20th, 2010: 8PM

My girlfriend of 10 years threw my Uncharted Seas fleet across the room breaking off all the sails and cracking some of the hulls in two. I think the fleet may be beyond repair. She has also given me a solid smack in the face for burning the pasta.

This makes me sad as I have come to realize over the last two months that she is verbally abusive and completely emotionally consuming. I am not sure if she is doing it due to stress at work or if it represents a change in her life attitude. I am worried it might be a medical issue or something she is unwilling to talk about. I am sure that it’s not me, and I am very certain that if things don’t change I will have to leave her. 

I am a sad monkey tonight. Sleeping in the Jeep...   :icon_sad:

This is a girlfriend of 10 years guys, that's not something you throw away just like that, not even for an outburst (which was completely wrong of her) like this.

That's probably also why he's fearing for a medical condition, I think he's got plenty of years of memories in which his girlfriend was caring and giving.

But Wally, you need to confront this, you know you do. This might be due to stress at work, it could be. But you've got to firmly tell her that you won't be treated this way because her work situation is lousy. You're there for support, if she wants a punching bag she should go to the gym and bleed of steam there.

A medical condition? I don't know, that seems more like an episode of a hospital series who seem to cope with interesting cases and rare diseases/disorders on a daily basis. But it might be the truth. Once again though, confront her. Explain the situation, describe what you believe has (violently) changed about her personality and see if she agrees, then you can go for appointments with doctors.

Sleeping in the jeep is not the answer and you know it. It's only a cool-down period and afterwards you can pretend that the problem 'really isn't that bad' or think 'I'd better see how this develops'. Make up a plan in your head for a talk and also for any option you can think of that might be the result of that talk. Up to and including making (mental) preparations on leaving her. If the talk goes wrong you should be able to act on it immediately (this also goes for a good talk btw).

Good luck.

It was in a yacht in Corsica. We went out of the port, battled with the sea for a 15 minutes before turning around and heading back.

I jumped out of bed this morning (it's lofted), went to the shower, turned it on and the next thing I know I'm on the floor with a 5-inch gash in the back of my head. I've spent the last 5 hours in the ER. Fun.

Did you slip and fall or did the shower come down on you?

I hope you have no serious damage out of that accident.

Post by: t12161991 on October 25, 2010, 05:55:29 PM
They think I fainted. If you're lying down too long (sleeping...) or standing up too long you can faint. Apparently it's fairly common. I've got the aforementioned gash and a slight concussion. My head was about two inches away from the shower across from me, which has a metal rim thing on it. Now that would have been really fun.

Unless they used a complete new engine for Teutonic campaign, it should be possible. I haven't tried though. I guess you need to remove the script that makes them an apparent faction as well, though any modders who have tried have probably already done that.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: t12161991 on November 07, 2010, 05:21:11 PM
Not sure how the Teutonic campaign comes into it...

The reason the pope is buggy is because of the inquisitor mechanic. I forgot precisely why, but that's the main reason. Mongols and Timurids are because they arrive half way through- you can give them territory at the beginning yes, but that screws up all the scripts for events. You basically have to rescript all the events in the game.

So it's possible, but would require too much work to be practical.

In Teutonic campaign? Yes, you do. You have Denmark, Norway(you can't play those sadly), HRE, Teutonic knights, Lituenia, Poland, Novgorod and Mongols, or the Golden Horde if you like. And I just noticed as I changed my Stainless Steel mod to late era, that the golden horde is playable from the start.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: t12161991 on November 07, 2010, 07:47:49 PM
TGH is not in the vanilla install of the Teutonic campaign. The Mongols are marked unplayable. Adding a faction is actually easier than modding an existing one with lots of scripts that you need to account for.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Dunrik on November 07, 2010, 07:57:14 PM
You might be right about that, I never really cared for mongols/TGH when I played, but you can still play them in SS late campaign :-P (starts 1220, so you start with the invasion of the Khewarezmian Empire.

17.
What's truly stayed with me from that incident is how I tend to approach such matters of romantic issues.
*shrug*
Plus, it's that time of year. Generally, toward mid-autumn, I tend to have random depressed moments from time to time. It's just been somewhat more frequent as of recently.

On the other hand delving in this issue perhaps isnīt the best idea, see it this way if you try to get a girl to like you and you fail you are at the same spot you were if you never had tried.

As stated if you start your romantic live a little later it doesnīt have to mean that it stays that way the rest of your live.

I failed yet another unit at uni, which means I now have to make up the credit point in the next four months. That makes for a grand total of three units failed, one of them twice. What the hell. I used to be an A+ student in high school.

How many hours a week do you study.  That is not doing homework or assignments, but study?

I just wrote a bunch of stuff here and hit the back button on my mouse as i was going to hit the reply button.

to sum up:

General, maybe the girl just isnt interested. Best thing to do is forget her and find a new one. It happens all the time. Oh and winter depression is common.

Stretch, i feel the same way.

My unhappy thoughts: my mock synopsis got shot down by my teacher for not being academic enough. Man i hate writing this dull academic style. It drives me crazy.
Its of no use anyway, its super boring to read, why not just write in everyday language.

UG,

I was engaged to be married when I was 18 years old. She left me. I was devastated, and thought I was hopeless and loveless, doomed to a life of solitude because no woman would ever love me. Of course, now I am married to an wonderful woman who puts up with me, and we have the best little boy in the whole world. Long story short: It sucks, but it's not the end of it.

You know that old saying: "Good things come to those who wait"? Love is like that.

Very few, and I don't think I "study" in a really effective manner either. However, this semester was two programming units, which had very hands on assignments. My biggest issue this trimester was trying to take too many things on - uni (even if it was only two subjects), two jobs and a social life. Something had to give. Good news for this trimester: doing one subject, I finish up at one of my jobs in December and I'm definitely cutting back on the social life. So I'll up the amount of study I do. and it should work out...it just might cost me a few job opportunities in the mean time.

Yeah I used to have a lot of social life when I started at Uni as well. me and friends would meet up at the pub every tuesday, thursday and sunday. The expenses meant I had to take all kinds of jobs. Didn't leave much time for studying that.

One huge difference between High School and College.  In college you are expected to show up at the classroom, knowing the material.  This lets you focus on the parts you don't understand and the deeper meaning.  If you show up to class to be taught, you are behind the ball and will never catch up.

I just hate it sometimes when I'm right...

Before summer I was to have my final exams from upper secondary school, but lucky me got sick and lost 2 of the 3 written ones, and strike hindered oral exam. Well, the oral exam weren't the problem, as I got a nice letter explaining that to whoever wondered why I never took that one. The two written ones however... I got my medical certificate saying I was to sick to fulfil both of them, and that I had the right to take them later. Sounds nice and dandy doesn't it? And that was the case with the first of them, which I was allowed to take right before the summer break. I was even allowed to apply to universities on the condition that I would take the last one as soon as possible. Now, if we ignore the fact that my upper secondary school never managed to send a letter confirming my sickness to the applying agents before it almost went to hell(they did after I told them...), it went fine . Well, until today that is.

I have 3 university exams, November 26., and December 2. and 8. Today I was informed what and which exam I was going to take up again from my upper secondary school. Guess the date... Yeah, you guess right. December 2. So yes, I'm kinda screwed right now... :eusa_wall:

Can't you postpone one of the exams as you have written evidence that those two are on the same day?
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Dunrik on November 16, 2010, 10:55:30 AM
If I postpone that one from upper secondary school I will be thrown out of the university and I will get a different kind of diploma. At least the administration there will take it up on a meeting today with the one responsible for it. I went to the information desk/admin desk at the uni to ask if they knew something I/they could do, or send me to someone who did know, and the only reply I got was that if I wanted to postpone it I should have done so before November 1. and that I am now screwed. I can not show up to it, and take it next year, but that opens another wormhole...

Don't. Be insistent, but always polite. Yelling and swearing makes people shut down their "nice and cooperative" centers and boot up the "I'll show that little asshole" routine.

Never lose your cool. Suggest solutions. Ask to speak to superiors if all else fails. But always nice and polite.

That's rough. It's a weird statistic, and I would not quote it to the unfortunate parents, but when you miscarry it actually increases your chances of a successful pregnancy in the future. Kinda like a practice run for her ovaries, if that's not too insensitive an analogy.

10 weeks and my wife is still sick with no diagnosis. Her next appointment is with a gyneacologist (I swear they're only guessing by sending her there, it was probably 50-50 between that and an urologist, simply going from those being the 2 most important areas in the lower abdomen for women) but it's only on december the 6th.

Right now there's another sample of urine at a lab. I'm actually somewhat hoping they'll find something bad so things will be sped up. :icon_sad:

Only if you get pregnant again right away. If you wait a few months your cervix is more open (or her cervix, as the case may be) and your body is less likely to reject the egg. At least, that is what I heard. I'm no doctor, of course, so everything I just wrote could be total BS.

I am pretty sure that miscarrying increases your chances of miscarrying again.

This is for % chance of miscarriage.

First pregnancy    5%
Last pregnancy terminated    6%
Last pregnancy a live birth    5%
All pregnancies live births    4%
1 previous miscarriage    20%
2 previous miscarriages    28%

What's bad is that we taught our 2 year old to call the dog, so whenever he says: "Comeer Buddeee" And clicks his little tongue, it breaks our hearts all over again. Of course, he does not understand that the dog is gone. Fortunately, he won't be heartbroken over it either.

Sorry to hear it Cannon, my sympathies. One of my nephews also just lost his dog, which his girlfriend found in a dustbin on the street - a real street dog. He was 19 yrs old though, so he had a long (and full) life

And damn you all for making me read through all 1800 strips after you whined about Dora and Marten. I was blissfully unaware of QC until you brought it up, and spent three straight work days reading it.

Women tend to live longer than men anyway.

So in a purely hypothetical situation if you are a woman of 70 married to a man of 62 or 63 then you might find he's still alive to still love you at that age.

Of course that depends on how much you've worn him out over the years with excessive demands ... and how much Viagra he's been forced to take .........

So, due to scoring a full time IT job next year, I'm leaving the piano teaching job I've held for the last 18 months. My boss organised a replacement for me, who I met a couple of weeks ago - she came and sat in on a couple of classes and kind of got a feel for how I was running things so she wouldn't be starting blind next year. She's cute, smart and we got along really well. So I figured I'd take a shot and ask her out at the Christmas party/leaving party, which I figured would be the last time I saw her.

Great plan. 'Til she showed up with the boyfriend she'd failed to mention.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.................

Somehow, during the course of the conversation last night, it turned out her boyfriend is going away for NYE, and she didn't have anything to do. So, in some moment of dim-witted reactionary whatever, I managed to invite her to the NYE party at my mates place, breaking two of my standing rules. I fail to see how this isn't totally going to totally blow up in my face.

2. No attached women (definitely breaking this one).
3. Don't try too hard (breaking this one because I'm waaaaaaay overthinking this).

So yes. Am I being an idiot? Probably. Am I going to hang on for the hell of it and enjoy the ride? Probably.

That was pretty much the dream.  I hadn't had a dream like that since I first started driving, at least that I can remember.  I also used to dream that I couldn't stop at gas stations, and my car would bounce off of the refueling stations.  And then my car would also be stuck with the accelerator down, so I'd bounce off and ram back into it, like a bumper car.  No explosions though.  Freaky mind games.

Turns out it's not overly serious he has cellulitis running all up his leg but they didn't want the infection spreading to his bloodstream so he gets to spend the week at hospital on some form of uber antibiotics plus injections to thin his blood from some big as needle into the stomach!

Course the 39 degree fever is still a cause for concern.

Edit:

So dad can't really walk at the moment due to the pain and circulation etc. So he's got a walking frame to help him get around so he's been walking around in his hospital robes going "boys don't forget your newspapers" like from family guy. Lol now he's doing his fat bastard impression...

Yes....dwarves suck when fighting in the mountains. But on open field they run around faster than elves. Tolkien got it right they are sprinters deadly over short running distances....especially when there is beer to loot.

Varying from 'I love you, why can't we be together' to 'I hate you jerk, breaking up was the best thing that ever happened to me'. Generally one of each was sent in pairs, within 5 minutes of eachother.

I am. I actually tried to block her number, but my phone won't let me.

@Fandir: if she is, it's not mine. I can be 10000000000000000% sure of that, metaphorically speaking.

The most pathetic thing was where she sent me a text that started with 'hey babe' but that was clearly meant for someone else (or probably just written to look like that) in an attempt to make me jealous.

Yes, I also found out that she and I just didn't compute that well concerning maturity. However, I would appreciate it if you and others not say things like that she is below me or that I will find someone better. I know they're things you just say when shit like this happens and I'll admit they do make me feel better, but it's not nice and puts you on par with her and her friends.

On the subject of unhappy and random thoughts, I just came across this little snippet of information:

A Vienna court has found a defendant guilty of "insulting a person venerated by a religious organisation" (§ 188 Austrian Penal Code), and condemned her to pay 120 daily rates.
The defendant had publicly stated that Mohammed "enjoyed a little bit of action with kids", referring to his marriage with a nine-year-old.
The court held that this statement was not true, and that the defendant was therefore guilty.


Now, this makes me unhappy, because...
Obviously, the Vienna court can actually tell whether a guy enjoyed a little bit of action with kids way over a millenia ago. No matter how many sources say that this was indeed the case, the court knows better.
This means that the Vienna court is basically omniscient. This makes me insanely jealous. Our courts, by comparison, have trouble finding out whether a defendant e.g. committed murder a year ago. Manifestly, our courts suck.


Furthermore, this makes me unhappy because I really really like the city of Vienna (if you ever get a chance to visit it, do it!), but this amount of competence scares me. What if I cross the street at a red traffic light? Or forget to draw a ticket for public transport?

A friend of my girlfriend named Kate claims to be a lesbian.  She starts dating an old flame but cheats on her girlfriend with guys.  She becomes so insecure about the relationship (despite the fact she was the one who cheated) threatened to leave her girlfriend unless they get married.  So after being together for about two months they get married.  While married she continues to cheat and starts doing heroine and crack.  About a month into the marriage they go to myrtle beach for their honeymoon and whilst on their honeymoon kate ODs.  At this point her wife find out everything; the cheating, the drugs, etc.  They file for divorce and Kate spirals out of control doing more drugs.  Me and my girlfriend get her off of it (to the best of our knowledge she isnt doing it anymore).  She decides to go on a date with a new girl and while on this date it was "instant attraction" not to the girl but the girl's male friend that she brought along on the date.  She invites him over the next day but he doesnt come out, instead he works overtime so he can get some vacation days to take her with him to a trip to NC for the weekend.  They are getting married in about a week...but they have only known each other for a week! And her divorce hasnt even been finalized. Me and my girlfriend confront her that this is probably not a good idea.  She tries to justify it.  " But He's in the military" not a good excuse."He's getting deployed in 2 months!" not helping her case at all.  "But hes lead a rough life!" so he may have baggage and a past, still not helping your case here.  "But he has Post tramatic stress syndrome because last time he was deployed he hit a mine and had to have his face reattached."  Okay so on top of everything he may or may not be stable.  But because your having a good time with him you want to get married after only knowing him a week.  "But I met his ex-girlfriends and they say I am lucky to be with him!"  so why are they ex-girlfriends?  Despite all this she still claims to be a lesbian...
(http://www.emotty.com/images/emoticons/1093.png)
They are in NC this weekend, but we dont know if the advice we gave her about waiting at least a year before thinking about getting married will stick.  Mind you everything I have said has happened in the past 6 months.

I had a huge fight with 3 of the local regulars at the shop on Tuesday. All because I didn't let them reserve a seat at the painting table by allowing them to put a bag on the chair and walk away when someone else wad there to paint. I was told to go die whiteman and other racial abuses. My manager and colleague did nothing but to tell me to be nicer to them.

The best part was their complaints against me.

1. I don't serve Chinese customers
2. I ask for table deposits from Chinese but not westerners
3. I play games.

1. My manager told me NOT to serve Chinese and leave it to him and let and to dealaimly with westerners
2. I DO ask everyone for deposits except 4 westerners who made the dn terrain which the locals continually break
3. I play when my manager says I can and when I'm not on the clock.

My manager seems to hope this all goes away there isn't to be any repercussion for their behavior towards me or what was said. In fact apparently I need to change. This is becoming a huge issue because all the westeners hate my manager because of the subtle racism he shows me and them and now the locals hate me because in doing what my manager has told me to do means they think I'm being racist to them.

I'm deciding if I want to push this issue or let it lie.

What are you going to do? You and I both know the inherent racism in the culture. Let's face it. Are your manager and his manager both HK? Then walk out or take it, because from the attitude he's giving you, he thinks of you as just another gweilo.

It was absolutely hilarious being shown off to my father in law's mates and business cronies. Baba is very open minded, and I have immense respect for him, but some of his buddies were absolutely seething that his daughter was marrying a whitey. All I did was smile and act exceedingly polite. This is the best way to deal with it. It is infuriating, yet since their hate has no justification there is nothing they can do if playing by the rules. If they want to play outside the rules, they will anyway and there is nothing you can do. So it's the best way.

Just deal with it. Retail in China is a shitty, shitty job to be in.

Oh and as Shadowlord posted, so true. In Beijing when using the urinals busted at least 10 dudes getting in more than just a sideways glance.

Wow Feanor! That's one bizarre relationship story!

The worst one I've got is about this girl who really just wanted a relationship to have someone near. She started dating this nog good stoner from a messed up family who was just averse to working. It was going terrible so what to do? You start to live together of course, that''ll fix things! So things get worse. He spends her money on a new top gaming rig computer and weed, so plays games all day smoking pot. So what to do? You decide to get pregnant of course, the love of such a little one will make your own relationship instantly better. I believe that 3 months after the birth the baby was (rightly) taken away by the child protection agency. She has a good chance to get her baby back though, dump the loser, reorganize her life again, so what to do? You decide you'd like to get married of course! Not only would this magically heal the relationship but instantly prove you're responsible and loving parents.
Well, the break-up happened before they got married and she still doesn't have her child back (2 1/2 years old by now iirc). And all the good advise went straight past her. :icon_rolleyes:

Next time someone says sei gweilo " die white man" in it's basic translation I'll just pull out all my Cantonese. Which mainly consist of " diu lei lo mo hai" along with other phrases.

For those who don't understand gweilo it's the same as saying nigger to a black guy, same connotations, same disrespect.

Sig are you telling me you were in hong kong and didn't get in touch with me?

I had a quick chat to my big boss apparently if it can be proven I was told to die (unlikely as its my word against theirs) he will get banned from the shop but any racism in the future will result in an on the spot ban. I'm sitting down with my manager and owner tomorrow to go through everything.

I also found out that most of the issues seem to stem from the fact my manager has never managed before nor worked with or around westerners before.

Attached is the draft of an email I'm writing to y boss of things I want to discuss tomorrow. Point 2. On the tables is wrong and I need to change that but the rest just needs polishing up.

Issues:
1) bags on chairs,
2) respect to staff.
3) Walters policies
4) staff support
5) race issues.

1) bags in chairs.
I remove all bags not just local. Chairs are for people not bags limited number why do they think they can reserve one for hours on end? Frankly I feel they can't and that they should not be allowed to put bags on chairs and reserve them. However if they ARE working and have paints/models out then they should be able to put their bag on if they go to the bathroom etc. But it cannot be a "I may paint in an hour or two" type of system.

2) I'm staff if I need the table for something then tough teddies to them. Why do they think they have a right to chairs or the table over someone who works in the shop?

3) 3 complaints reported to me 1. I don't serve Chinese customers 2. I ask Chinese but not westerners for table deposits 3. I play games in the shop.

Answers 1. I was told when Walter first arrived to deal mainly with western customers and to leave chinese customers to him and Kent and practice in the last few months has reaffirmed this policy.
2. It's our job to ask for deposits I was yelled at for simply asking if it had been paid and there are witnesses to show I didn't hassle nor was I rude in asking. As for not asking westerners they MADE the terrain and are exempt from the charge. The locals are
Charged because they show no responsibility or care unless forced too.
3. I play no games without Walters approval and Walter can attest regular gaming is becoming rarer and rarer. So I assume they mean my role-play. Well 1st what business is it to them? 2nd I play with Hanani after I have finished work and the s.I. Club and Walter have come to an agreement.

4.staff support. I had 4-5 guys yelling at me and insulting me am acting like 3 year olds stealing a 15yr olds chair to try and prove a point. Through this all Kent to my knowledge did nothing and Walter simply rolled over and then later I was informed that I was wrong and that in essence Walter agreed with them and I was wrong and that I would need to change. No penalty or repercussion for how they treated a staff member or what was said to me appears to have even been thought of.

5. Race issues. I could be wrong but I'm sure I heard sei gweilo spoken which to my mind is unacceptable. I may have sworn at them but I didn't make any racial slurs or insults while I received them. Frankly I believe the people who said such slurs should be banned for life. 

Somehow the divided between locals and westerners has become a gulf since Geoff left.

I think this is in part to Walter and his reluctance to have anything to do with a westerner
Unless forced. And his policy as I perceive it that I'm not meant to serve locals unless forced too.

They may be angry I ask them to be quiet at times. Well Walter was less tactful then me in talking to Jeremy. The locals yell and shout when there is no need to. Walter apparently has no issues telling jeremy to behave himself but allows it with the locals...

the locals treat the place like a social club. Now the impression I get from Walter is that he feels that's how westerners treat the place. Frankly that's how it was. But again you have isolated the westeners to the point they no longer come in at all and have no want to support the shop because the shop doesn't support them.

Yet again you allow the locals to treat the shop as some club. They throw their bags onto a gaming table with no second thought. They treat the terrain with no care and they treat the entire shop as some playground for them to enjoy afterwork.

I understand you want to keep some social aspect to FA but that's not Walters focus. I clean up after everyone. I take everyones bags off chairs so anyone can sit I ask for table deposits from everyone and you can ask everyone and you will see it's true.

I believe the complaints by the locals reported to me are made entirely from ignorance because they do not know the whole picture. And I hope a simple explanation will make them understand and clear things up. But I feel the lack of support shown to me was entirely unacceptable as was any racial slurs spoken towards me. I believe we need to have a proper policy in place for such altercations that I've had and Walter has had with some of the westerners. 

I also believe people who offer racial insults should be banned immediately whoever they are.

Haha nothing to report really. Just a whole bunch of glares. The guy who put his bag on his seat at sat did the same thing deliberately in front of me while trying to get in a satring contest the entire time. I just kept painting my arachnarok spider (it's so cool). Then when he got up I put his bag on the ground. He has proceeded to stair daggers at me all day but his mates aren't in tonight while I have 6 friends all around me so he's staying silent.

Being in a car accident a few hours ago.. Only some damage to the front of the car.. Nothing the matter with me or my girlfriend besides shakken and getting a bit stiff muscles.

Hit the van in the side just in front of the rear wheel. pulling away from the traffic lights (green light) and he came racing through red, was just able to hit the breaks and only end up hitting him in the side..

some pictures.. (last 2 are from my car)

Wow SKS, was the kid in the car too? Lucky on the damage part, I hope that wanker in the van has learned something about running a red light.

Though it seems he uncovered a stash of coke hidden in the traffic pole (what IS that white stuff?).

When I'm aware of somebody running a red light I like to pull up aggressively (though with no intention of actually hitting the moron). The fear in their eyes is an indication of a lesson learned, or that is what I always hope.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: StealthKnightSteg on February 28, 2011, 09:07:49 AM
No the kids we're home sleeping, I just went out to pick up my girlfriend from work (al together a drive of about 15 minutes, and neighbours watching kids) I'm glad they weren't with us, would have been hell to get them settled again.
It's lease car, so I got a replacement straight away from the tow-service, now it's just waiting on what the lease company is going to do with the car. I would have replaced it in july for a new one. So they might speed that up now and right off the car no matter the extend of the damage.

That white stuff is sand, it came out when he took that bikes trafficlight out of the ground.

I think the dude had also a little to much to drink aswell..

Most stupid thing of it all was that some dude in a pizza courier car came along, parked his car right smack in the middle of the crossroads to have a good look around... Turned out he had seen the bottom of his glass also to many times and was also booked by the cops..

Need to rectify this as the police officer came by just now to check the statement with us so that we could sign it.. She told he was just an aggressive driver that threatened one of the police officer that was directing the traffic to overrun him that was why he got booked not due to booze.

Seems the driver we had an accident with did had to much to drink.
So that is, drunk driving, ignoring red light, speeding and demolishion of government property?

I dont know why but latley I havnt been getting much sleep. sometimes ill go 2-3 days without sleeping, and then other days I sleep all day.  I need to fix this.

Start jogging. Sounds stupid, but it will actually really help you get on a sleep schedule.

Did a bonemarrow extraction yesterday (my third in the past ten years) and I had forgotten how nice it felt.

If you replace nice with OH IT HURTS then you get what I mean.

The best part, they had to do it three times before they succeeded.  ::heretic::

I definitely have Pfeiffer's (or kissing disease, which is a little more common term). Which, on the plus side, means I don't have leukemia, which was the other option.

Thanks, I was really relieved as well. My doctor didn't say that that was the other option during the physical because it probably was mono/kissing disease, to not scare me. Unfortunately, my mom is also a doctor, so I found out anyway XD

Well, it's not dangerous, just really annoying. It makes you tired and gives you throat pain, can also lead to loss of appetite etc. It's presumably transferred via saliva contact -> kissing disease. The degree to which you are tired and/or your throat hurts differs- I'm for example not that tired, I just can't go to uni and have to take one or two naps during the day. My throat, on the other hand, is burning out of my head and I dread every time I have to swallow food, as that hurts even more. But some people are tired to the extent where they can't get out of bed, which can last for months or even years.

So in conclusion, it's not a dangerous disease, just annoying. And it varies from person to person how bad it is. The bitch is that you don't know how it will affect you until it at some point stops affecting you and you can't do anything about it.

But eh, I'll manage. I just hope it won't last months and months.

manual defrosting with a knife = punctured evaporator coil.

I used greenstuff on the punctures. Hopefully it has enough refrigerant in it to cool again.

Let no one say this hobby isn't good for anything. If the Landlady realizes there's a puncture, tell her you wrestled a tiger into the fridge to protect your pregnant fiancee. Then launch into an eloquent complaint about the tiger infestation of your flat. You might even get damages!

Maybe lay down for a nap is code for passed out unconscious drunk. Only other option I can think of is teeth grinding from meth abuse! Which seems unlikely.

Ouch. Hope you are feeling better now.



In January, I had placed an order with Maelstrom Games, a rather big one. Didn't hear from them for weeks, then I wrote them. Answer:
"Some of the stuff you ordered is unavailable. We'll split the order, and you get the rest as soon as we have it."

Okay, so far, no problem. I would have liked being told without actually having to ask, but hey, no need to get angry.

Almost two months later, there's still no sign of the rest of the order (amounting to about GBP 50). So I ask again. Answer:
"Sorry, still not available. You get a refund. The refund goes to the moneyback (their internal bonus program). Since the money gets refunded, we deduct GBP 28 from your moneyback."

So essentially, they want me to pay GBP 28 for merchandise I never got. And it's not a mistake either; it's both in the mail and in my user account. Nice try, guys. :icon_rolleyes:

Nope, but it pretty much is by now. 'Dropping' everything last week was the best thing I could have done I guess. Feeling a lot better- planning on going back to university tomorrow. That way I hope I can at least pass the coming exams, as I missed the last one (last Friday).

Yup, but they only mean that I can't get kicked off the study (which would also ban me from taking it up somewhere else for five years). Still have to redo the test(s?) this summer. But I've made my peace with it- getting wound up over it will only make it worse.

Sucky thing is though that my ex (who I most likely contracted it from) is not suffering from it.  :unsure:

Getting dumped SUCKS!!!

isn't the first time a relationship ends. But this was the first time in my life i was planning on builiding my life around someone else.
2,5 year of total bliss, this girl, our relationship was a good as it gets. after another briliant weekend i wake up next to her on monday morning and seeing her face i knew something was wrong. We talked before about the fact she didn't know what she wanted with her life at the moment, having doubts about having a relationship at all, idealising being single. finding stuff out for herself, not having someone to fall back on.... But hell, that was months ago, and things went so fucking smooth. The saturday before the break up one of her girlfriend made a comment to her that it was so great to see that my (ex)gf still looked so very much in love, like we we here still in our first month. she bloody rediated....
well so much for that.

but 3 months later and i still feel like crap. First month was doable thanks to large amounts of alcohol...But trying to get one with everyday life is a pain.....

Women are the root of all evil!!

If that were the case for me, my rate of migraines would've increased incredibly over the past 4 years, and not dropped to about 1 every year (which is awesome considering I used to get them close to weekly).

Huh, how's that?

Don't know, one of my eyes just seems incredibly sensitive to sunlight, so I literally cannot open that eye when I'm outside in sun.

At least my throat is better, and I am not coughing up a lung anymore. Just nasty olive drab colored loogies.

3) at work not being able to paint up my 2nd and 3rd entries that needs to be done today and probably won't make it
 
Also 1 collegue already gone a few days due to a family member laying on her deathbed.. and now another collegue has rushed home/hospital coz his mother is been admitted with urgency..

Only to be greeted by a German menu.

I am told by my son that the crashing at the end of a game is a driver thing.

It is not enough to have the latest drivers ( his was only 3 weeks old) you have to have the specific driver that says it plays Shogun.

If that makes sense - I deciphered it from a series of grunts ...........

I find your decision not to rate patsy as a "person" a bit harsh, but anyway - you might want to take a look at, for example, the TWCenter website. The technical help forum is stuffed full of "...crashes..." topics in endless variations.

That might have been a possibility though I find it far fetched for our game store as it's also the local gaming club, everything they use for the club and then have left over gets put in clear plastic bags for resale at discount prices. The club also pays for any stuf they use. Besides why open a battalion box for a few parts if there are smaller packs around with only bases in them? Anyway haven't heard from Customer Support yet :(

I switched from the right lane to the middle one, he switched from the left to the middle one, from behind me. Didn't see his blinker, if he had it turned on. So our sides smashed into eachother, because he was going about twice as fast as I was (driving onto the A1).

Knight with just the base equipment, cling ring and thief ring. I've only done 1-1 with this char.

I'm considering restarting with a royal or tower knight though. Mainly because I like the look of the royal's special ring.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: MrDWhitey on May 07, 2011, 09:56:15 PM
Yeah, go Royal, do 1-1 then go to 4-1 for the sword behind the first black skeleton. Excellent sword as it does damage based on magic and it regens mana. That's what my current playthrough character did.

That sword killed Tower Knight in 4 swings to the head.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...

Shrine of Storms, or the Archstone of the Shadowmen.

Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Jape on May 07, 2011, 10:51:42 PM
Ah a thread to spew, good idea chaps.

The thing that grinds my gears at present is thought of spending another year living with this 'couple' I... well live with! I'm a third year University History student and due to a lot of reasons that would take too long to go into, and frankly 90% are my own damn fault, I'll be resitting.

Start of this year, so September 2010, I moved in with a guy I'd become friends with on my course and a girl I knew via another friend who needed a place and couldn't find one. Alone they're fine, fine people always a good laugh etc.

Sadly recently they've become close and are for all intents and purposes a couple now. This on paper is no problem to me, I've lived with couples before and for many years. My parents for example.  :happy:

However they are possibly the most cloying, mawkish twosome I've ever bourne witness to. Sopperific 'w's seem to creep into all their sentences as in "Aww I wove wou"! etc. Not only are they the living embodiment of every love-struck stereotype but they are totally self-sustaining. I cannot count the number of times I've been in deep conversation with one of them only to be stonewalled due to the other say... coughing. They then proceed to go awww and other proceeds to give the sick party a "hankwerchief" or something equally vomit inducing. Then there are the nights to the pub/cinema that are quickly revealed to be dates with myself taking the role of third wheel/torture victim.

A level of schmaltz I can stomach but this combined with being made to feel a stranger in mine own home is altogether a constant blister on my heel. It hasn't driven me round the twist but I dare say a few more months could do it.

I can't get past the first guy... I just get slaughtered. Can't block for shit because one hit drains all my stamina, he moves too fast for spells, and I get one hit in then he kills me. I think I'll try without the Tower Knight wondersword again.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Sig on May 09, 2011, 04:50:25 AM
There's something you can apply to your sword that makes the Tower Knight go down in a screaming heap but I forget what it is. It's not the fire oil stuff. I think it's something that makes you do magic damage. I only had one use of it at the time but once I applied it he died like a bitch. He didn't get up from the first knockdown, he just died.

Anyway he's pretty easy. Like I was saying, you need to go do 2-2 ASAP to get the fire demon's heart to start upgrading your gear.

Ah, just looked it up. Sticky White Stuff is the weapon consumable that I used to massacre him.
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: MrDWhitey on May 09, 2011, 02:57:09 PM
Sticky White Stuff, the best item in the game. Best named anyway.   :engel:

Anyway, if you have Soul Arrow Tower Knight is easy anyway  :closed-eyes: Though a real man punches Tower Knight to death.

As a caster I'd only go to 2-2 once I'd killed Tower Knight and freed Sage Freke. Warding helps so much on Flamelurker (I know he does fire damage, but he also does massive physical).
Title: Re: Unhappy Random thoughts...
Post by: Sig on May 10, 2011, 12:31:45 AM
Yeah that's fair. I didn't play a caster, I picked up a few spells early on for quality of life like the hearthstone equivalent one. I forget names because it was ages ago now. I played a lightly armoured high strength/dex character for the first half then threw on Garl Vinland's armour right near the end, did world 5 right before 1-4. I started using buff casts fairly often. I did use Soul Arrow to kill Flamelurker from memory. He was just too tough in melee for an unarmoured guy because of no Fire resist. He was so quick too.

Only regret was I didn't go back and do Old King Doran.
